"Organic is a means of production; it is not a guarantee that the food is clean. Pesticides and herbicides do not respect field boundaries. The most heavily contaminated green tea Shaklee ever tested was grown organically – the farmers didn’t know it, but their water was contaminated. So our approach is to know our suppliers and to test test test. Some term this approach “beyond organic”, because we are actually doing everything we can to confirm the absence of contaminants at detectible levels. We have, for example, tested guarana samples and found pesticides present; but the guarana used in MindWorks tested as clean."
